With this show's air date falling on July 1st, Canada Day, I decided I best get all patriotic, eh, and program a wide variety of Canadian artists in the second half to celebrate Canadian jazz. In the first part there are tunes from new releases by Benoit Delbecq, the trio of Devin Gray, Ralph Alessi and Angelica Sanchez, Ireland's freewheeling trio of saxophonist Adam Nolan, and two guitarists—Poland's Grzegorz Lesiak and his band Tatvamasi and New York's Alex Levine .

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
